2019 CBB Rankings: Week Twelve

Here at the ICT Zone our rankings are molded after Ric Flair's famous quote, "to be the man, you gotta beat the man." The week's ranking are based solely on the week's results so if a lower ranked team defeats a higher ranked team, the two teams automatically swap rankings.

As of last week Princeton was at the top of our top 25 and this week remains the same. Virginia Tech surged into the top 5 along with Villanova who jumped 8 spots and are now on an eight game winning streak after a disappointing start to the season. 

The most surprising addition the top 25 is Illinois who come in at 20th despite a 6 and 14 record. Oklahoma State, Creighton, Akron, UTSA, Illinois, Rutgers and VCU close out the other newcomers. Kansas basketball is still out of the top 25 after missing a golden opportunity to claim the number 16 spot in a defeat to Kentucky.

Tune in next Monday to see the week's top 25.
